DESCRIPTION Snaroya presents a unique opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow with ample grounds and superb views positioned in a fantastic, peaceful location within the popular village of Carperby.

In the centre of the village there is a high-stepped cross dated 1674 and tells of the time when Carperby had a market (granted in 1305). In the 17th century the village was an important Wensleydale centre of Quakerism with it's classically-styled Friends' Meeting House of 1864. The name of the Wheatsheaf Hotel, located in the village suggests a corn-growing past, and the inn itself was where James Herriot and his bride spent their honeymoon in 1941. There is a well-used village hall, excellent community and beautiful walks from the doorstep!

The bungalow requires some internal modernisation but externally has recently been re-pointed and the roof made good, it also benefits from double glazed windows throughout and oil central heating. The property was built in 1975 and is stone built with a timber frame construction. It is positioned in an elevated and secluded location with superb panoramic views.

The accommodation on offer is flexible and spacious. Currently there is a light and spacious sitting room, kitchen diner, study, house bathroom and two generous double bedrooms. The garage/store could easily be incorporated into the main house to provide a third bedroom, home office or playroom.

The bungalow sits within a generous plot providing superb gardens both to the front and the rear. There is a fantastic range of mature shrubs, flowers and trees in addition to lawned gardens. To the front there is a good sized gated parking area which can accommodate several vehicles. The gardens provide a perfect sun trap from which to enjoy the excellent views.

A unique opportunity which provides a perfect active retirement or family home.
